Free DivX Movie for your PS3

Free DivX Movie

If you register your PS3 on the DivX website you can download a free DivX movie. You only have 5 movies to pick from, but hey it’s free!

  1. Go to the XMB > Settings > System Settings > DivX® VOD Registration Code. Write this down, you’ll need it.
  2. Open the PS3 Web Browser and go here –
  3. Log in or Create an account
  4. Type your DivX Code into the box and make a name.
  5. There is a 25 second registration video you need to play on your PS3 to complete the registration process.
  6. Choose a movie download and it should download straight to your PS3 HDD.

Let me know if I need to modify these instructions. I haven’t tried it myself yet.

Here are the file sizes, let me know the size of the other movies and I’ll update this post.

Batman Begins 1.41 GB
Ace Ventura 888 MB

    It does not work. It seems they just want your information.

    Actually it does work, but it’s the most convoluted system. I’m not surprised I’ve never used it before – way too complicated and the quality is poor.

    I think you need to download it on a computer though, not the PS3 browser.

    I screwed up, I closed the browser after I registered on the PC, and now when I log back in all it allows me to do is register again. Of course I can’t since it’s already registered. Epic Fail!

    I tried to do it through my PS3, but I accidentally clicked on Sisterhood of the traveling pants movie, didn’t really mean to, I want to lol but can’t.
    The text of that movie was not readable and I clicked thinking it will show a trailer and that’s what it said beneath the image, which the cursor didn’t pass on so I thought each of those linked to trailers.. Didn’t even ask for confirmation and it lead me to the DL page. Instead of hitting download, I foolishly tried the back button, which gave an error code.

    To my email, they also sent the link, but it is a very tiny .tix file I downloaded to my PC desktop. Dunno what that is..

    It is fricking simple, but I botched it, because it is somewhat unintuitive, and that movies damn name can’t be read. Argh..

    Now I see, .tix file is a divx ticket, to initiate downloading the movie. However, my PS3, a certified divx device, does not recognize it. That means I have to install their latest divx player to my PC, which I won’t. Cheers to them!

    @luke: Lol, I’m being honest! But it really doesn’t matter, I know you guys wouldn’t hate me in any case 😀

    Worst VOD system ever…

    Link some of you already said… it’s very unintuitive

    I don’t think it is possible to play on PS3… Is it ? The fact that you ps3 is a DIVX certified device allow you to register and then you need a computer to see your movie.
    Probably that if you buy a movie at 15$ for a mediocre quality then you can copy the file on a disk and play it on your ps3… Duh… go to your videostore, rent the movie and copy it then you can play the movie where you want when you want for less then 3$ without using your bandwitch.

    Anyway… I understand know why nobody use DivX VOD !
